Oh, _I_ have read it every week since you started posting that, and even
sent you some addenda, but it's not _me_ who will have the problem (I
upgrade my development system twice a week, to keep track of unstable).
A user that doesn't want to upgrade his system to libc6, just upgrade
a single libc5-based library to another libc5-based version, only has to
add /usr/lib/libc5-compat, /usr/X11R6/lib/libc5-compat and /lib/libc5-compat
to his /etc/ld.so.conf to keep having a libc5 system, but using the
libc5-based libs from hamm. Am I wrong?
I have just checked and couldn't find which postinst will add those lines
when upgrading from bo to hamm (I thought it was ldso's one, but it
seems I was wrong), so it would be nice if that was suggested somewhere,
perhaps in your mini-Howto.
